Aortic Aneurysm

Question

They VA combined my AA and CAD as one. Is this correct?

They stated; Abdominal aortic pain or aortic aneurysm is incorporated into the overall impression of your coronary artery disease,status pos coronary artery bypass graft.

Thanks

Thanks for the reply;

It seems to me that Diseases of the Arteries and Veins are a separate claim then heart disease.

Am I wrong in thinking this.

Should I file a statement in support of claim wit a NOD?

Thanks

RDT, did you first have calcium deposits in the aorta before the aneurysm?? Before the CAD was diagnosed? Just curious how yours developed. (See my earlier post, 10th February). Would appreciate any input. Thanks, VMO.

Hi,

I had a heart attack and 5 way bypass eleven year ago when I was 49.

I had pain in my arm pit three year ago and that is when my VA doctor scheduled a sonic-gram and found the aneurysm.

She is watching the size every 6 months to keep a handle on it.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
